HANNIBAL, Mo. — Works of art created by area community leaders paired with artists/mentors will be auctioned at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main. Attendees may view the artwork for sale, enjoy hors d’oeuvres/drinks and network beginning at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $20. Pre-registration is required. To buy tickets, call 573-221-6545, stop by 105 S. Main or visit https://hannibalartscouncil.eventbrite.com. Proceeds benefit the Hannibal Arts Council and its programs. Tickets at the door will be $25.

The artist/mentor/community leader teams are:

  • Steve Ayers – Hal Benedict/HNB Bank
  • Rebecca Butler – Natalie Will/WGEM Morning News
  • Kim Caisse – Alicia Rollins/Edward Jones
  • Todd Damotte – Jeriod Turner/Benson Financial
  • Becky Evans – Erin Otten-Smith/F&M Bank
  • Brenda Beck Fisher – Brad Kurz/Edward Jones
  • Patricia Garey – Ryan Rapp/Commerce Bank
  • Matthew Hemminghaus – Ann Lear
  • Steve Holt – Brock Fahy/Chariton Valley
  • Vilma Holt – Susan Wathen/Hannibal Regional Healthcare
  • Tai Taeoalii – Sarah Hathaway/Prestige Realty
  • Cyndi Taylor – Sandy Borrowman
  • James Zimmerman – Austin Shulse/Dutch Country General Store

The Bad Art by Good People title is meant to be tongue in cheek. The end-product of the community leader working with an artist/mentor will more than likely be good if not great. Community leaders were matched with artists/mentors by drawing names out of a hat in November. The Hannibal Arts Council connects community leaders and artists in a new way.
